There’s no major upgrade in the upcoming Office 2016, but there are few changes that are essential to document sharing and data storage.
According to The Verge, several updates “include real-time editing by multiple people within the desktop apps, as well as new design themes. There’s a dark theme and a “colorful” theme, which basically just makes the apps look like they already do on basically every other platform, with big blue, green, red, or purple bars streaming across the top of each app to correspond with its icon color”. Excel app is now upgraded with new charts. Data Loss Prevention and Multi-factor Authentication for Office 2016 apps are also added.
